Best Images of 2016

10 January 2017

Once again, I’ve taken the time to review my photos from the past year to choose what I feel are my 10 best. I collected 205 candidates over a couple days and winnowed it down to 10 in about 30 minutes. (With that sort of momentum, I’m lucky I had any photos left to show!)

It’s been a year of photographing people. While toys, macros, and nature may have gone into the process, those images didn’t compete with the all the interesting people. My photographic lighting style also continue to show up in more images than not.

Curiouser and Curiouser

The model shoots and events were good this year. This is Masha Modelle at an event at Omni Lens Studio.

So Easily Swept Away

This image of Tara Doratt was shot upside down at the Lancaster Camera Club Model Shoot at Binns Park in Lancaster.

Erica’s Reflection

Sally invited me to participate in a shoot among friends who met at last year’s Promoting Passion Conference, so here I met Erica Jay, and she came up with these lovely poses and I came up with the lighting. The pond is at Frog Hollow Studios.

Follow Me Down

Here’s another with Erica Jay. She flopped herself down in that contorted position, and I just framed it up with the lines. My speedlights were taking a little break, so this is open, natural light.

Becca Glow

This collaboration came about with Becca H and DJ Diesel while we were doing some promo shots. I always like to toss a strobe out in the front lawn to get those crazy beams through the blinds.

The Way Back

way back

Tourist Inn in Hellam hosted a Braptizm party and I fortunately found some hoopers. With lots of shooting, I managed this tight little frame with so much motion. I find it interesting to find one of these frames that work so well in black and white. The star is a little bonus.



Aaron Brown provided me this other black and white shot spinning LED poi at a Merr Bass at The Depot in York, PA.

Industrial Transport

DJ Kiltboy takes the helm at Shadowland Lancaster. As is often the case, my little pop of flash freezes Eric Carter in a swirling sea of lights provided by DJ Diesel at Lizard Lounge, Lancaster, PA.

Spill Not a Drop

Cheers is a whirlwind of a party thrown monthly at JB Lovedraft by the Skullfunkaz in Harrisburg. There’s little room to get out of the fray, which is OK, since I seldom stray far from the dance floor, especially when they’re spinning Drum n Bass all night.

Rosie the Riveter

Marie had a great Halloween costume, and it deserved to be captured in one of my favorite images of the year.
